New CBD-based ingredients for skin care products made from domestically farmed industrial hemp have just been released by German chemicals business BASF. There is a claim that the ComfortBD product line can help reduce skin irritation by providing a mattified complexation.
“Since the pandemic, consumers have shifted their preferences, looking for sustainable and efficient solutions, and CBD is the perfect candidate for this, as it’s a natural solution that provides relaxing and calming properties,” Nader Mahmoud of BASF’s Personal Care business in North America said in a company statement.
“Our Research & Development team has deep expertise with plant and botanical extracts. They found the exact synergy and combination to create an active ingredient extracted from L. Cannabis sativa soured and sustainably grown in the United States.” BASF’s Care Chemicals division offers ComfortBD components, which are colorless and odorless and have been proven effective in both in vitro and animal testing.
Over 80% CBD and less than 0.2 percent THC make up this product’s potency. Kemin Industries, a leading supplier of ingredients for the food and beverage sector, recently launched its Luxiva range of hemp-based CBD distillates.
